Whooooo Am I? #1


This is the first post of my Whooooo Am I? guest post giveaway. If you have no idea what's going on over here, click the link and join in the fun!


What a novel idea Cyndy had! I am so excited to be a guest author on her blog. I wasn't quite sure what I should blog about so I stared at my computer screen with pursed lips and furrowed brow trying to figure out what to write.

Then it dawned on me... I'll write about the "blogosphere". What an amazing phenomenon! I'm sure you will agree! After all, you make it what it is. I "follow" a lot of blogs and feel like I'm visiting someone's living room. Every blog is decorated in a way that shows the author's taste... not unlike the living room in her home. The blog posts are also things that are near and dear to her heart... just as a conversation in a friend's living room. Throw in a few pictures, again just like her living room. It's can also be a very intimate thing, her blog ... yet it can reach millions of readers. I've read blogs that chronicle devastating illnesses as well as every Mom's nightmare, the death of a child. I've cried for children I will never meet and marveled at a Mom's strength... not only to try to grasp and "live" through that unfathomable grief but to write a blog post that a Mom like me will read and carry in my heart. Wow!

My blog is pretty lightweight compared to some but I love it. Sometimes I have a certain topic in mind. Sometimes I just start typing and see what comes out. I've surprised myself... a post starts out one way and, by the time I've finshed writing it, it's nothing like I thought it would be.

I love the blogging community. I have made friends who I've never met, but, with whom I share a great deal... be it my three favorite things or an idea that makes me reflect and think.

I absolutely adore reading the comments that my readers (not as many as Cyndy, but, it gives me a happy jolt every time I see my follower numbers). It's still thrilling to me that you actually read what I've blogged about and then to take the time to write a comment... well, thank you! It makes my day, really.

I hope you have a nice day!

Have you figured out "Whooo Am I"? I'll be there for you if you figure it out! Maybe you weren't born to follow, but I hope you'll follow me once you figure out "Whooo Am I"!

Ok friends, if you have any idea who this may be, send me an email! Remember to look for clues...and read between the lines!

Hi!

I love your description of a blog as the author's living room! I agree that it's like that... You really often get a sense of that person's everyday life. And it's intimate.

I agree that the blogosphere is great for the communities that it creates, especially the friendships. I've had many comments from beautiful regulars and others that have helped me get through some really tough times.

And I totally know what you mean about the happiness you get when you see a new comment! I feel the same way! If my comment brings you that same cheer, then I think that's great.

You seem like such a nice, honest writer and person so I will be back.
